For hikers the Caldera de Taburiente is a must. The Caldera is a 1.5 km deep and 9 km wide crater in the center of the island. The crater is 35 million years old created by a volcanic eruption. The erosion process has slowly formed the landscape in the caldera rise. The valley is surrounded by crescent-shaped ridges with a height of 2,000 meters and overgrown with pines and other conifers. On the lower parts are streams, brooks and springs along with willow and bamboo. There are still remains of cave houses and altars, which belonged to the ancient people of La Palma, the Benahoares.

Hikers can reach the crater via the Barranco de las Angustias on the southwest slope. Other routes go over the 2,000-meter crater rim. On the southeastern portion of the rim of the Caldera lies the viewpoint La Cumbrectic at an altitude of 1,287 meters. From here you have a magnificent view of the caldera.

The top of the Roque de los Muchachos is with 2,426 meters the highest point of La Palma. This summit provides beautiful views of the Caldera de Taburiente. When visibility is optimal, you can even see La Gomera, El Hierro, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.


In the northwest of La Palma is San Andrés, a place of great historical value. The streetscape is defined by narrow, cobbled streets, beautiful Canarian mansions, mighty trees and colorful flowerbeds. In the center is the Plaza de San Andrés, a large square with palm trees surrounded with busy terraces.

At this square is the 16th century church of San Andrés Apóstol is situated. The wooden ceiling is in Mudéjar style, the gilded Baroque high altar with the image of the patron saint of the 17th century testifies to the richness of the past.
